In this rapidly changing world, we know that each of us is capable of developing the ability to surf change as if entering an adventure rather than dreading and running from the barrage of stressors firing all around us.
We know that there can be a calm within the storm of haranguing internal and external voices that then allows a clearer vision to emerge of the best pathway forward.
Within that calmer place comes the ability to create new responses with agility, to tap into our highest levels of intelligence and to keep us tethered to and inspired by our core values.
We just have to learn how to do it.
Forty-eight percent of top executives say their HR leaders act as business partners, 41 percent see them as reactors, and only 11 percent view their HR chiefs as anticipators, which is the role they want HR to own within their organizations. shrm.org
Responding with Reason and Creative Solutions
Many organizations are mired in the quicksand of internal turf wars, failed initiatives, and power struggles. Emotions flare.
We are all wired to be reactors for basic survival, adrenaline pumping through us at any sign of attack. Back in the day, this functioned to protect us from practical world dangers like animal attacks, and the choices were fight or flight.
The mechanism takes over for quick response so that we are not slowed down in our reactions - but ultimately our reasoning is hijacked. Very helpful, even now when in mortal danger, but not so great at the office or over the dinner table.
Navigating emotions seems like a never-ending battle. The National Science Institute tells us that Human Beings generate 12,000 - 60,000 thoughts a day with 85% of them being negative and repetitive!
Finding a respite from that much negativity and knee-jerk response and replacing it with moments of calm open-mindedness and creative solutions is a pathway out of the quicksand.
